HAWKS AT SERENITY'S EDGE!
Serenity’s Edge is a prime site for watching the migration of hawks and other birds. The cottages all have decks with a clear view of the skies and padded lounge chairs that make bird watching a joy. Each cottage has bird identification books and binoculars. It is not unusual for kettles of hawks to be seen here, riding the thermals off the mountain ridges.
Typically, on a daily basis, you can see two pairs of red-tailed hawks playing in the thermals. One of these hawks was severely injured with a compound fracture of the wing. Paula Tiara captured the bird and took it to the wildlife refuge in Winchester where the wing was repaired and the bird was taught to fly again. Can you image the thrill of being able to release this bird back on the mountain several months later?
Until late November and then back again in the early spring, you will see an array of migrating hawks-- especially red-tailed, broad wing, red-shouldered and the smaller Cooper’s hawk. You may also see other birds such as eagles, ospreys, kestrels, and peregrine falcons. These birds of prey migrate to areas in Mexico, Central America and South America for the winter months.
